    Zune: Secrets and Lies

    iLounge has some hot dope on the Zune including a description of the UI and some of its fancy wireless features. Here’s some pithy info: Wi-Fi: Eh. Apparently you can use the Wi-fi feature to “loan” other Zune owners music for some short period (a day), giving them the opportunity to buy the tracks themselves from the Zune music store. While this is a cool idea, and could… Read More

    Apple Denies Wireless iPod

    DigiTimes, the people who brought us word that the Xbox 360 was definitely $200 by Christmas time, spills the beans again on Apple’s Taiwan branch saying they were not working on a wireless iPod. Usually, Apple doesn’t’ confirm or deny upcoming projects, but on account of Apple Taiwan getting 1/3 of their staff slashed, the remaining workers probably didn’t care what… Read More

  • Aigo A/V Wristwatch

    Aigo A/V Wristwatch

    The Aigo F209 is an all-in-one wristwatch that features a 160 x 128 OLED display. It is capable of playing MP3 and WMA audio and can run MPEG-4 XVID/AVI video. The F209 is available in 512mb and 1gb models. We’ll prolly see more and more consolidated devices like this, but for now I’m willing to bet that any product of this nature sucks. I do love the color scheme though and I… Read More

  • The Optimus Mini Three Keyboard Exists

    The Optimus Mini Three Keyboard Exists


    Thinkgeek got their hands on a final production sample of the Optimus Mini Three keyboard; the keyboard that only has three keys. Despite that, each key has an OLED display on it that you can use to show whatever you want. Examples are weather, how much free memory you have, how much your current CPU usage is, or a 3FPS webcam stream. It’s only Windows compatible for now, but Mac and… Read More

    Stick 1-Line Phone Router

    So you’ve got a phone, a fax, a TiVo and your old Windows 95 machine running AOL dial-up all hooked up to the wall, sharing a single phone line. Do you order 4 lines and pay out the nose? Of course not, you get the Phone Router, which “screens and automatically routes all voice, fax, and modem calls to the right equipment every time.” We’re not sure how this magic… Read More

    Horseman 3D Stereo Camera

  • Top 50 Mobile Phone Sites

    This is a pretty meta post, but it’s interesting news. It seems that Cingular is the most popular world cellphone website while ChinaMobile is #1 by a head, neck, and left shoulder. You then kind of peter out right around motorola. Mad4Mobile created the study and found that PhoneScoop – a personal favorite, is one of the better phone blogs out there. In this study we have picked… Read More

  • BeCell Vibration Headphones For Gaming

    BeCell Vibration Headphones For Gaming

    Instead of using motors, this vibration stereo headset from BeCell uses bass vibration technology to give you tactical sensation while you’re fragging along in UT 2004. The headphones are of the around-the-ear variety, and have on-cord vibration control. We can see this being useful for gaming, but for listening to music or watching movies, it would probably just be too obtrusive. Read More

    TomTom ONE GPS Released In North America


    The tiny GPS navigation system with a large 3.5-inch screen hits the US shores this month, after much delay. It only weighs 5.6 ounces and is 1 inch thick, which is tiny for a GPS system.

    Candid Zune Pics Surface


    Zapruder-esque footage of the Zune is surfaced and Gizmodo seems to have dibs on all the goodness. It has magnetic earphones that stick together and comes in 150 different color combinations, which is why all of the images you’ll see will be in black and white until launch. No further info, but looks like the Gizzer has something up its sleeve later today. Exclusive Microsoft Zune… Read More

    NotForNoobs.com: More Viral Gimcrackery


    So, so silly. Gizmodo and others are positing that Microsoft’s latest hork-tastic viral marketing attempt – called NotForNoobs – is basically a way for them to sell high-end media hardware for the Zune. The key is that snake right there, which is the logo for Razer and which is working with Microsoft to rock out to some slow jams with their Razer keyboard with Zune dock. Read More

  • Masterlock Bested?

    In the spirit of bump keys comes the padlock shiv. Using a small shard of metal extracted from an aluminum can, one can apparently pop most padlocks. I’ve heard about this before, but prior to this the only thing I’ve seen people manage to open with the shive was their flesh. These guys look to have gotten the process down successfully, but I wish the video had a better shot of… Read More

    Hear About PopSugar Yet?

    If you haven’t heard of San Francisco-based PopSugar yet, prepare yourself. You are going to start hearing about them a lot in the mainstream press. They are a blog network, and more recently a social network, targeting young, hip women (as well as a few guys that want to hang out with young, hip women). PopSugar was founded by husband-and-wife team Lisa and Brian Sugar. Lisa began… Read More
